The tale of the bear’s paw

This video poetically tells the story of a bear’s claw nailed to a church in the village of Navacepeda de Tormes in the Sierra de Gredos. The old people say a man had been attacked by a bear and had defended himself with scythe. Bears became extinct in Gredos at some point in the 16th century. Kindly sent to me by Claire of Gredosvivo, bird watching tours in central-western Spain. The video was researched and made by Enrique Sacristán. Also available in Spanish.

    Surely analogous to the hand of that grisly Moorish cannibal, Fatima.
